you. jon: we still have debt deadlock on capitol hill with the default deadline just eight days away now. congressional leaders are still struggling to hammer out some kind of a deal, one that would raise the limit on our nation's credit card while cutting trillions of dollars in spending. house speaker john boehner may unveil his own bill today. harry reid said it would be a nonstarter. wendell goler is live on the north lawn with more. >> reporter: speaker boehner's plan would take the spending cuts agreed to before talks with vice joe biden broke down and raise the debt ceiling a little less than that. it would satisfy the speakers bottom line which is cutting spending more than the debt ceiling is raids but we'd have to go through this all over again by the end of the year. the speaker said yesterday it would solve the immediate crisis. >> there is going to be a two-stage process. it's not physically possible to do all of this in one step. having said that, chris, i know the president is worried about his next election, but my god shouldn't we be worried about the country? >> rep
not expect. jon huntsman said in may he would not self-finance his presidential campaign even though he's rich enough to do that, at least in large part. today he didn't have to file any campaign fund-raising information, because he hasn't been declared for very long, but did say he raised about $4 million and his campaign would just say that he did contribute to his own coffering here. all they'll say, it wasn't a majority. only that what he gave is less than half. jon huntsman is, at least, sort of self-financing here and declaring it, and letting it be known. is that worrying in terms of his chances as a real candidate or encouraging because he has his own money to spend if he wants to? >> first of all, i don't understand the original statement. don't make a statement that you know can be disproved when the sec reports come out. and in terms of his fund-raising, i'm inclined to say, wait until the next cycle. i mean, jon huntsman has only been around for a little bit. i think his opening is that republicans who are not bachmann republicans decide that in the end he might have a bette
karl is in washington and has more on all this. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. there is no presidential candidate with more momentum right now than michele bachmann. ♪ my home in -- >> reporter: no republican presidential candidate has taken a harder line on the debt ceiling showdown than michele bachmann. >> we were all shocked and appalled that president obama dangled out in front of the cameras that senior citizens may not get their checks. that's a very dangerous statement to make. we don't believe -- excuse me. excuse me. we don't believe that for a moment. >> reporter: tough talk from bachmann is nothing new but she now speaks with new-found authority as a top tier contender for the republican presidential nomination. a new national poll puts bachmann firmly in second place as the leading challenger to front-runner mitt romney. and in key first caucus state iowa, three separate polls over the past week put bachmann in first place. >> republican primary voters are looking for somebody who has -- brings some excitement, who brings something different to t
. >> reporter: jon huntsman? >> he's refreshingly kind of -- comes across as non-ideological. conservative, but practical. i think governor romney's doing a better job as a candidate this time than he did four years ago. i'm not surprised by how well michele bachmann's done. i've been watching her speak. she comes across as a real person. >> reporter: ever the political junkie. jake tapper, abc news, chicago. >>> and one of the reasons michele bachmann comes across as a real person is because she's willing to share so much about her personal life. last night, she opened up about suffering a miscarriage, a first for a presidential candidate. abc's sharyn alfonsi has more on the candidate who is putting her family's struggles and joys at the center of her campaign. >> reporter: it happened at a packed town hall meeting in south carolina. >> after our second chchd was born, we became pregnant with a third baby. and it was an unexpected baby, but of course we were delighted to have this child. and the child was coming along, and we ended up losing that child. >>>>eporter: the crowd stood still
but not taking part in the ames straw poll. jon huntsman is the same way. viewing iowa not necessary to his path. is that a dangerous move? >> i think is it very dangerous. if you look to the last cycle and think what happened with rudy giuliani and the guys that decided we can bypass the social conservative, a fool's game. you don't gain momentum. south carolina is sitting right there and south carolina is going to bring back the social conservative issues. by the way, rick perry is a guy who is strong on abortion. a guy who has a strong position in gay marriage and he appeals to the social conservative. if he is there with the money he's a major player. >> bret: agree? >> yeah, the potential is he invites somebody else to the dance not making a big play in iowa. if he made a big play and won it, won caucus, it could be over before it started. it makes strategic sense on one level that he dumps resources in there and had nothing to show for it except for embarrassment to overcome the rest of it there is a risk there from a front-runner to skip an early state. >> bret: we haven't talked about sa
're off to a good thursday, i'm jenna lee. jon: and
now. for better or worse, we'll start talking about mitt romney and jon huntsman and the mormon church, just as we talked about president obama and what church he went to. >> thank you for joining in on the qufrconversation. >> you bet. >>> taking a trup to l.a. they even raised the money they needed until they saw the bill for the airline fees. would you like to have a look at a map, my lad? ah, why not? shall we check on the status of your knighthood? yes. again? yes, again, please! thank you. with my digital manservant, i'll never be homesick again. would you like me to put the kettle on, sir? no, i'd like you to get rid of that ostrich. it's been here a month. [ male announcer ] think, type, go. with just type. only on the new hp touchpad with webos. >>> they love to sing their hearts out and the choir, heart of all nations, wanted to take it on the road. the inner city church even raised the 25 grand to pay for the airline tickets out there. it turns out that just wasn't enough. spirit airlines said the crew would have to pay an additional $6,000 for the group's equipment to go al
the question? has the migraine ever kept you from work? >> we'll see if she does. jon karl says he follows her closely on the campaign trail and no one works harder or more vigorously out there. so far, so good. >>> other news now, the postmaster general is pushing now to cut back mail delivery to just five days a week. he says the post offffe lost $8 billion last year and is on track for a similar loss this year. that's because mail volume is down mostly because of people using the internet for letters and to pay their bills. >>> it is a bittersweet morning for nasa astronauts and crew members as the final shuttle mission comes to an end. it's the end of the historic shuttle program that dates back to the 1980s. while the crew says gogo-bye to the shuttle, many nasa employees ll be saying good-bye to their jobs. >> reporter: on their last full day aboard the space shuttle "atlantis" the crew practiced landings on a computer laptop, peered out the windows and read poetry. the men on the ground who will lead "atlantis" back through the landing said thursday morning would be tough. >> i don't th
was former utah governor jon huntsman, the most moderate of the candidates vying for the anti-romney vote. huntsman has already ruled out competing in iowa and understands new hampshire is a must-win state. >> it is absolutely central to victory. this is a state you must win. >> reporter: in iowa, which votes first in a presidential contest, candidates were fighting for the social conservative vote. there were long shots newt gingrich and rick santorum. as well as tea party sensation michele bachmann. a recent poll has the minnesota congresswoman in a statistical dead heat with romney while gingrich and santorum barely made a dent in the single digits. tim pawlenty also polled poorly there. he raised a disappointing $4.2 million this quarter and has had no public event over the holiday weekend. but those in the bottom half of the poll can take comfort in the fact that the early polls don't tell us that much. this time four years ago mike huckabee was way down at 4% right where rick santorum is today. huckabee ended up winning iowa. >> jan crawford in washington this morning, thanks. >>> j
